"Candy Girl" reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and No. 13 on the R&B chart, the last of the group's entries to make the R&B chart.
The song tackles the subject of a girlfriend where, "our love is real." The Four Seasons song is a rock ballad to a loving girlfriend ("I've been a-searching o’er this big wide world/Now, finally, I found my/Candy Girl").
